CASE STUDY: MICRO PULSE LIDAR ENABLES AUTOMATIC AEROSOL CHARACTERIZATION

Public health problems related to airborne pollen activity are on the rise in European megacities. Many people suffer from allergic reactions to biogenic particles that are naturally created by trees, grasses, flowers and other vegetation. Cities with large parks and gardens or nearby forests tend to have higher pollen counts than less green urban areas. In Barcelona, Spain, the Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSLab) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) collects columnar atmospheric measurements with a Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) instrument to support its research efforts in the field of pollen release, dispersion and transport.
